“ My art is an extension on my self-invention
I use my art as a form of personal research
I use my art as a form of personal protest
I use my art as a platform to step on to see over segregated   walls
I use my art as a blindfold to buffer pain
I use my art as a weapon to combat social injustices
I use my art as a tool too justify the truth
I use my art as a tool justify lies
I use my art to explore my feelings
I use my art to expose my feelings
I use my art to conceal my feelings
I make my art because it is my acquisition of wealth
I use my art as a substitute for religion
I use my art to conceal my fear of living
I use my art to veil my fear of dying
I make my art because when I see the art that I make
I am more likely to forgive the brutal concealment of America’s History “

-Randy Williams
